Web Braille books are already in grade 2 braille so they don't need to be
translated if you read them with a device that is aware of braille, like the
book port, braille lite, braille note, pac mate, and braille sense, and I am
sure I am leaving some out; mPower is another one. I put web braille books
on a compact flash card and then physically carry them to the braille lite.
I used to be able to do that with the book port, but lately when I try to
read a book that way, book port says it can't read unfiltered documents. I
guess that was probably a recently added feature.
You could also read web braille books with a braille display attached to
your PC, but the key is portability; there's nothing more pleasant than
sitting outside on a lovely day and diving into a good book.
You could always translate web braille books to regular text using Duxbury
or another braille translator; then you'd have the flexibility of reading
them on any device you like.
